Jessi Burg

Outgrow Your Garage
Founder and CEO
Delta, CO
Jessi started her journey as an entrepreneur after experiencing toxic work environments. She thought there had to be a better way to value employees, pay them a living wage, and still be able to work outside. Her first company, a landscaping business, taught her that being a business owner amplified her voice and allowed her to advocate for the trades, as well as seasonal and gig economy workers.

Now onto her second company, Outgrow Your Garage, she is building that advocacy work and teaching other trades, services and mobile companies how to grow sustainably and equitably. As a values-driven business owner, Jessi believes in breaking down class barriers and proving that small businesses can be profitable while creating robust communities and better job opportunities. Through Outgrow Your Garage, Jessi also supports organizations that reduce recidivism through entrepreneurship. By supporting small businesses, Jessi is helping to create a more equitable economy and stronger communities.
